"If I don't have to do it, I won't. If I do have to do it, make it quick," is the basic principle by which energy conservationist Houtarou Oreki lives. But after his sister convinces him to join the Classics Club, Houtarou's life is turned upside down when he meets Chitanda, a perpetually-inquisitive girl who challenges the boy's easygoing existence. Intrigued by the slightest hint of a mystery afoot, Chitanda doesn't hesitate to pester the reluctant yet highly analytical Houtarou into satisfying her curiosity at every turn, no matter how small the problem. Alongside fellow members Satoshi and Ibara, the group tackles cases ranging from a self-locking classroom door, a strangely-popular library book, and even the shadowy history of the very club to which they belong!

I absolutely love this anime! While watching it I could not stop grinning or making comments, it has caused so much emotion in me. It's so funny and the cases are interesting, my favourite one is the valentines one even though it was not complicated at all, I think the way all the characters behaved during this was so cute and unexpected (Eru crying, Satoshi saying that he loves Mayaka and Houtarou getting so... read more
